I am excited to share the news that GLAD Kids is becoming a part of The Heights Foundation/The Heights Center family.
This partnership means that our children and their families will have a continuum of care and education including preschool, elementary school, after school, and summer camp. In addition, families will benefit from GED and ESOL classes, visual and performing arts classes, culinary job training, and social services.
You may have noticed the bright new colors of our building. Look for more information as we will officially celebrate with a ribbon cutting in January!
As 2018 comes to a close, we are proud of our many accomplishments:
-The number of children enrolled has increased
-An additional Early Head Start classroom opens this month
-We have maintained APPLE Accreditation & Gold Seal Status
-We are a Preferred VPK Provider of Lee County Schools
-We received a 5-STAR rating from the Early Learning Coalition of Southwest Florida
We will continue to implement improvement initiatives to ensure our children receive a quality early education. We are committed to ensuring low income families have affordable child care so they are able to work and provide for their children.
But we still need your support. GLAD Kids relies on private donations for more than 30% of our annual budget.
You make it possible for us to improve the lives of families who struggle daily to make sure their children receive a good education.
Please consider a year-end gift.
We are deeply grateful for your support,
Chair, GLAD Kids Board of Directors
